When it comes to legendary sampling hardware, perhaps there is none more legendary than the E-Mu SP-12 and SP-1200 hardware. Original released in 1985 and in production for nearly a decade, the 12 bit sonic character of the SP-12’s have kept them highly collectible units for beatmakers and producers to this day. Well is just so happens that Ryan had an SP-12 buried deep in his storage closet!! Fortunately for all of us, he dug it out from storage and dives into showing what the SP-12 actually sounds like and then seeing how close he can get to recreating that sound inside the Reason Rack.
